The Shaman.
Out of Inga Cloud paired with Cupid - a pairing that just seems to deliver over and over again.
When this boy was born it was like a dream come true. I often hope for a female (dont we all?) but this one I wanted a male. And I wanted a modern grey male. And I wanted a modern grey male that showcased his Daddy's color, density and uniformity of fleece and his Momma's proud nature and optimal conformation and fleece character.
And THAT is what I got.
A slate grey tip to toe male.

I had some folks at shearing last season (2021) and the folks visiting (experienced breeders; all of them) nearly dropped when I brought this guy out. To say he is a good looking animal is just the under statement of under statements. "The MOST attractive animal I have ever seen." "There is literally no guard hair ANYWHERE" "That color!"

Shaman won first place at the National Western Stock Show (2020) in a competitive group of yearling grey males.
And he won, according to the judge, because of his strong character, outstanding consistency and uniformity and superior conformation traits.

Shaman easily settled 6 females in 2021. At 2 years old - not much interest but at 3? He jumped in without hesitation. First time was a charm for all. All the females were dark/modern grey except one. One was an elite white. Call me crazy but I was curious.
I simply cannot say enough about this guy and I cannot wait to see the outcome.
Histo results for 2021:
25.3/4.9SD
you may be thinking - why even post those results? BECAUSE he is the most impressively uniform dense and consistently colored modern I have ever laid eyes on. BECAUSE his daddy is also not the finest guy on the block but delivers outstanding results pretty much every time. More to come.


Keep an eye on this boy. I have plans for him.
